Soldier Shares Inspiring Story About Writing His Own Book While Deployed In Africa

D.L. Jennings shares the kind of achievement-ridden story, brimming with impossible levels of productivity and steel fortitude to back, that'll inspire the rest of us on some level (while feeling lazy AF) to get shit done. Seriously, the story behind the creation of his book, "Gift of the Shaper" is an amazing tale in its own right. The fact Jennings put this together amidst 14 years of active duty (thank you for your service) is damn impressive. Check out his Facebook page over here if you're looking to snag a copy of his book, or read more about him.

J.K. Rowling, in her never ending quest to become everyones "cool aunt" on Twitter, has offered up some inspiration in the form of rejection letters.  


The pictured letters are both tiny and a little blurry but if you put on your reading glasses you might see that one is a polite and short dismissal and the other is apologetic and offers some helpful tips after saying "No, thank you." 

This was part of a discussion where Rowling also answered questions and, as usual, offered a response to a fan that was both supportive and wise. 



See, just like everyone else, J.K. Rowling got rejected a few times before becoming an international sensation. Take away her fame and she still gets rejected every now and then.
